Jeff on pinball is always some of my favorite high-quality Giant Bomb content.
I haven't seen this so I'm guessing he played Clannad cause i heard that isnt bad.

I love to think that Jeff does these sorts of things when he's sick of the business end of running this place and just wants to take a break and play some games.
1:23 in you realize Jeff created this segment just as an excuse to play Burnout Paradise.
I AM JUST FINE WITH THAT.
i'm baffled that we have a Jeff on PC stream without any Trackmania :D
@onemanarmyy: yess we need more trackmania hehe
Man it bums me out Jeff hates EDF. It's a fun campy, B-movie kaiju video game with a Starship Troopers aesthetic.

We need a new Burnout game.
I always miss these streams live due to my night shift work schedule. Glad they get up fast so I have a way to enjoy my long, lonely nights.
Alsoc glad whenever we get some plain old video game playin'!

Jeff, Earth Defense Force 4 > Syndicate
So glad he played Odallus. That game is amazing and it was tragic that it never got any coverage when it came out.

Wasn't feeling the Burnout soundtrack for a while, I remember it being better.
And then, you know... that one hit.
EDF is fantastic, it's fun and skill-based and you're building up a character as the scale constantly goes up a notch. Sucks that Jeff doesn't like it, as it's a game-ass game focused purely on gameplay. Harkens back to the shoot em ups of old.
Syndicate sucks Jeff
EDF!!! EDF!!! EDF!!! EDF!!!
Actually, I still have to try Syndicate.....
Mandatory when hearing the Black Knight 2000 music
Pinball Arcade VR sounds like an awesome idea. Was the idea of a standup pinball style 'controller' setup for VR a real thing that showed up somewhere or just a brilliant idea that Jeff came up with on a stream when that was first announced?
Love you Jeff, i'll pay for premium again when I can afford it.
jeff solo streams are like comfort food.
Only thing missing are boxes and a jar
There's plenty of Hitman content on the site already, I get that, but I really wanted to see Jeff's approach to taking down a target...

@stinger061: Jeremy Williams at Tested built that. Google "Tested Pinball VR" & you'll find it - I would link, but iOS is still using the plain text comments
You can't go wrong with a solo Jeff stream.
I haaaaate that UI update to The Pinball Arcade. It looks absolutely awful, like a half-assed port from a mobile version of the game, and as someone who doesn't own every table, it's shitty and bad to have no option to filter out the tables I don't own. I'm not a fan.
In any case, tomorrow I'm going to a museum that has a bunch of pinball tables! I'd been lamenting the absence of pinball for years now and didn't know until I saw it on the Pinball Arcade's very own Facebook page that there's a place about an hour from me! Pinball is dope as hell, I'm pumped.
That "This Is the Police" seems super interesting. It would be nice to watch a quicklook of that

@bybeach: it's hands down one of the best shooters of that generation.
Anyone know what wireless headphones they got?
I forgot Rescue 911 even existed until this, and I used to watch it all the time along with Unsolved Mysteries. I can't believe there was a god damned pinball table. Maybe not the *most* bizarre property, but it's gotta be up there, right?
God damn, Burnout Paradise was such a good game. I had forgotten. I wish they still made driving games like that, instead of Need for Speed (2015) which is...I don't even know what that thing is.
@jensonb: I never particularly cared for Paradise. Weirdly enough I liked the previous Burnout games but Paradise seemed empty to me and kinda bland in comparison.
Gah, I love Pinball Arcade so much.
I worked at an arcade for a while earlier this year (still would be, but alas, the owner... let's just say that some folks have no business running a business), and one of the first things I learned was that maintaining tables is a pain in the dick. They are the embodiment of Murphy's Law.
And messing with the glass is a little scary. My coworker was working on the amazingly unreliable Nightmare On Elm Street table, which involved removing the glass and setting it aside. He barely tapped it against the leg of the adjacent table, and it just *exploded*. There are probably still shards and slivers hidden everywhere.
I love pinball, also fuck pinball. (not that the game cabinets and Skeeball machine are much better... I swear, something broke every single day)
Is that speedrunner guy just Kenny from TWD?

I'm guessing that Blade Arcus game has characters from the Shining series (Shining in the Darkness, Shining Force, Shining Tears etc.) in it? Never really played many of those.

Yet again it was an honor to get in on some Quake action during a GB live stream and be fucking terrible at Quake Live whenever these kinds of streams happen with Jeff or Brad!
I know Jeff has some weird anti-Metal agenda but I'm pretty sure that whole Speedrunners from Hell game is just parodying Doom and id Software. Because if you want stupid metal 'tude look no further than Romero's work.
EDF sucks so much
So strange. I just installed Burnout: Paradise 4 days ago. Still a amazing game.
That Odallus: The Dark Call game looked pretty neat.
@szlifier: Hey duder, is there an archive for this stream? Thanks.
I can't watch Jeff play Burnout Paradise without the faint echoes of HEY HEY YOU YOU I DON'T LIKE YOUR GIRLFRIEND emanating from the back of my mind.
@edmundus: I will upload it when I get home in about 6 hours

These pinball tables have some amazing audio. Loving the old arcade approach of making everything louder and more intense.
Ugh, Burnout Paradise was SO GOOD! It's a crime that they never made a follow-up.
@jeff For picking this game to stream, you sir, are a hero!
Jeff playing the Black Knight 2000 pinball machine. Now I have that theme song stuck in my head.
I think EDF is boring. I played the first one that came out on xbox 360, there's too little content and too much repetition for the length of the game.
I wasn't completely sold on Burnout Paradise when it came out, I found the more open-world nature of it a bit of an annoyance compared with how focused/streamlined the earlier ones were. I have warmed to it a lot since, it's one of the best games of that generation.
It's still possible to purchase the Burnout Paradise DLC on Origin (not on Steam, unfortunately):https://www.origin.com/en-au/store/buy/burnout-paradise/pc-download/addon/burnout-paradise-bonus-vehicle-pack
@jensonb: Turns out that came up a little later in this stream too. Really interesting as I love the idea of Pinball Arcade but I've never quite been comfortable playing with a controller having spent so much time playing real pinball machines as a kid. That and the fact that the PS4 version is still lagging sadly behind on content.
Am I alone in thinking Quake just kind of looks like a mess? I'm in my mid-20s so maybe I just don't have the nostalgia, but it seems like you just shoot a gun for 3 seconds, then you get shot and respawn.
